Cyclists wanted! Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank

Fri 29 Jan 16:00 pm
Ringcross Community Centre, 60 Lough Rd, London, N7 8RH
Delivering essential supplies to local neighbourhood families

Ringcross Community Centre has been operating a large foodbank since the start of lockdown, and currently offers food and essentials to over 70 Islington households every week.

Islington Cycle Club have also offered assistance to the project, by arranging a food collection pickup from shops and supermarkets, often using a cargo e-bike.

Goodgym have offered to assist with delivering shopping parcels to various households around Islington (no more than 2 miles from the community centre).

Would you like to be a foodbank cycle courier?

All deliveries will be prepared in advance, with addresses and contact phone numbers attached to the parcels.

You will need:

A bike

A method for carrying pretty heavy stuff

This can be pannier bags, or a large rucksack (12 ltrs or larger). Most deliveries would be the size of 4 shopping bags of items, so a larger capacity bag will make your trip easier. A few spare bags will be available to borrow if required.

There are 3 large bags available to borrow if you are without a suitable rucksack!

Some sort of map

Google maps on your phone would be fine.

Confidence when cycling on London streets

We are looking for safe cyclists! Steady, controlled and predictable cycling is preferred over speedy deliveries!

Any questions, feel free to contact Simon Fitzmaurice (Islington Trainer).

Pedal Powered Parcels

Fri 22 Jan
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

This Friday was our first Ringcross Community Foodbank Cycle Delivery session in complete daylight! We did not require additional lights for the first time in months (perhaps spring is going to start soon?).

4 intrepid cyclists joined us fpr our weekly cycling task, delivering large bags of donated shopping and essentials for Islington, Harringey and Camden households. Our team were all previous participants, and the crew mentioned how much quicker we were this week (we have a smooth and efficient system now!). 7-8 deliveries were dropped off to very thankful residents!

A bike? E-bike!

Fri 15 Jan
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Goodgym Islington returned to the Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank this week (4pm every Friday) for a round of cycle deliveries around the local area. We had a great crew on board for the evening, including new starter Olivia and Peter from Redbridge, who joined us with his company cargo bike.

We completed 12 deliveries between us to households in the Islington and Harringey- really great work, especially considering how large some of the parcels were. Our team made use of large backpacks, pannier bags and baskets to safely transport essential food and produce to their neighbours.

Incredible work everyone. See you again soon!

You can sign up here for next week's session:
